Off The Cuff with Ali: Imagination

MITT_OfftheCuff.jpg

This week, we’re taking a mid-season break from the Portrait Session podcast and instead presenting you with a bonus episode of Off the Cuff with Ali. The event took place a couple weeks ago as part of the Reigning Men exhibition at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney. With an audience of over 40 guests, Ali brought his column in MITT issue 9 to life, as he looked at prominent movements in art and fashion, exploring how they affected one another, and continue to shape our contemporary imagination.

OFF THE CUFF WITH ALI

This podcast is the first in a new series called Off The Cuff with Ali, based off of Ali Asghar Shah’s new column in MITT magazine. A month after a new issue is released, we will host a book club of sorts at the Men In This Town HQ at Fine Fellow, where Ali will lead a discussion revolving around the topic he wrote about. In issue 7, he delved into the world of classic menswear in a ‘A Class in Classics’. During the live discussion, he explored what classic menswear is, their brief history, what gives them their elusive status, and whether we have exhausted them. Have a listen and if you want to read Ali’s full piece, you can pick-up a copy of MITT magazine issue 7 now or subscribe to make sure you don't miss a future issue.

We celebrated MITT magazine issue 4 a couple weeks ago with our second MITT Studio Talks over at Kit and Ace in Surry Hills. It was the first time we recorded the session so we thought we would make it available as a little podcast. The plan is to record all future talks, which will run once a month when we move into The MITT Mrkt. on Foley Street in July. So if you’re not Sydney based, don’t fret, you won’t miss out! 

If you head over to the podcast section, you’ll also find previous Portrait Sessions all grouped together for your convenience. You can also subscribe on SoundCloud or iTunes.

Hope you enjoy this one in the meantime!

BOOTLEGGERS WINE TASTING

After a wine induced collaboration with Sydney based wine start-up Bootleggers, where we profiled how Australian men are expressing their personal style and taste through fashion and wine, we finally got a chance to celebrate. The stylish Men In This Town readers who registered for a chance to attend, got to sip on a 2008 Dal Forno Romano Amarone della Valpolicella, which retails at $549 a bottle. It was worth every bit. Thanks for everyone who came out and for the men featured over the past few weeks.
